Always on the road, New Zealand folk duo The Bollands have been singing their infectious foot stomping folk songs since 2011. With their love of travel, music, good friends & fine wine, They have gained a reputation for their passion filled live shows and heartfelt folk tunes. Their energetic, foot-stomping music stems from their upbringing in the folk and roots music scenes in small towns and folk clubs throughout New Zealand.
Joyce, a classically trained pianist, met Christian, a hairy folk singer, at a campfire jam on a remote beach in their home country, New Zealand. They clicked instantly. Since that fate filled night, they have been playing their passion filled songs on the road throughout the world. The Bollands have had the privilege of sharing the stage with international artists such as Chris Garneau (USA), Jeffrey Lewis (USA), Little Fish
(UK), Sun Eskimos (Hong Kong).
The Bollands have performed live on Hong Kong's well known TV show RTHK (Radio Television Hong Kong) 'The Works' which has included other international acts such as Jason Miraz. In 2014 RTHK Radio 3 asked The Bollands to host and curate their own 8 week radio show where they performed live, and showcased some of their favorite bands.
